Re: Do those exist at all: Serial-to-USB / Parallel-to-USB / SCSI-to-USB / PCMCIA (Type I or II) to USB adapters ?

Not really. It has to be fast enough to translate the USB protocol to serial. if that was directed at my reply, then No. That can be done with a microchip microcontroller. No need whatsoever to throw a whole raspberry pi with USB, HDMI, camera connector etc at it. if not then... If I remember …

Re: Do those exist at all: Serial-to-USB / Parallel-to-USB / SCSI-to-USB / PCMCIA (Type I or II) to USB adapters ?

Don't know why, but always thought that USB t0 PS2 + PS2 to Serial adapters should be enough for a mouse 🙄 Must be careful with such things... Those common PS/2 mouse <-> COM port adapters only work if the mouse is designed for both PS/2 and COM ports, notably it must support the 12 V of the RS-232 …

Re: Does Audigy 4 fill a gap?

The Audigy 4 Pro just has better DACs so you will have cleaner output. Other than that, you will not see any difference over the Audigy 2 ZS. https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/creative_labs_sound_blaster_audigy_4_pro,1.html Audigy 2 DAC: 1x CS4382: 8out 114dB dynamic range, -100dB THD+N Audigy 4 …

Well.. here is a different idea. Parallel port to IDE adapter.. with DOS drivers. https://www.ebay.com/itm/IDE-Drive-to-Parallel-Port-Converter-Adapter-Bridgeboard-Datastor-EP-2000-/273395273722 (Not my listing, nor do I sell these or have anything to do with the seller.)

One thing does come to mind as far as parallel port goes. You could always get a Microsolutions Backpack Parallel floppy drive and then replace the drive with a Gotek floppy emulator. Interesting idea. Though it seems like you'll be able to use only one type of device - Disk-on-key. Yeah, but it …

One thing does come to mind as far as parallel port goes. You could always get a Microsolutions Backpack Parallel floppy drive and then replace the drive with a Gotek floppy emulator. I guess you may also be able to do the same thing with a Parallel CD-ROM drive and one of those expensive CD-ROM …

That pic is a joke. The only thing really possible out of your list is a PCMCIA USB adapter. Those do exist but unsure if there are any that will work with DOS. Probably not with There are some USB DOS drivers but you would just need to try them out and see if you can get something to work: https:// …
